Renting/Buying Equipment

    Any advice on renting a trackhoe/excavator to dig a half acre pond? I've gotten quotes to hire it out, and now am considering renting the equipment and doing it myself. Can just anyone rent an excavator? A dozer alone won't work for me in my pond site - I would need an excavator.

    I would also consider buying one, then selling after the job was done. How difficult are they to operate? I haven't been in anything even remotely that large, but I imagine that would be fun! What about maintenance?

    If I went the buy route, how big an excavator? I would like to get down to 15' depths.

    Thank You!!!

    I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
